I'm about to build the 1/48 Me 262 Mistel released by Dragon:
and I'm not sure how to display it. The kit detail is good so I like the
idea of leaving some panels like weapons and landing gear open -maybe a jet
engine too- and add wires etc., but this prevents me from displaying it in
the weird mistel configuration: I guess when it was lift the landing gear
was still down, but there is no reason to have the upper plane in place with
guns and engine panels open..maybe extremely late -and uncomfortable-
On the other hand I fear that displaying the bomb and the plane separately,
upper 262 with panels open, somehow misses to reproduce the unusual shape of
mistels, which instead should be the main purpose of building this kit.
Third choice is to completely ignore realism and leave panels open even in a
"ready for take off" situation, but i don't like it at all...
What is your suggestion? :o)
